ASHEVILLE, N.C.– Riverbend Malt House today announced the immediate availability of its new Munich Rye. This new Rye Malt is an evolution of Carolina Rye Malt, a distinctive heirloom rye cultivated in the south since the mid-1800’s.
Munich Rye is produced in much the same way as Dark Munich and Light Munich 2-Row Malts. The Rye is stewed while holding a higher moisture content in the kiln. This process braises the grains and brings forth a deeper, expression of the Rye with flavors of pumpernickel, wildflower honey, and savory spice.
“We’ve had this one on the R&D calendar forever, but it was definitely worth the wait,” stated Brent Manning, Riverbend Co-Founder. “When it emerged from the kiln, we knew we had something special. Perfect for a dark lager or porter recipe!”
“I was lucky enough to try Munich Rye right as it came out of the kiln, and I immediately thought of Cracklin’ Oat Bran cereal,” remarked Jennifer Currier, Head Brewer and Blender at Wicked Weed Brewing’s Funk House. “It’s warming, spicy, brown sugar notes are a perfect match for a beer we brew called Pompoen, a sour amber ale fermented with pumpkin.”
Riverbend’s Munich Rye is in stock and available for immediate delivery.
